    In present study Marigold (Tagetes erecta) petals were used for the extraction of the natural dye material. Aloe vera juice was selected as natural mordant to standardize the dyeing effect of Mari gold dye on natural and synthetic fibers. Natural dye was formulated with Marigold dye and natural mordant Aloe vera juice in the ratio 2:10, 5:10 and 10:10 and the effect was compared with synthetic mordant namely copper sulphate, lead acetate and potassium dichromate with Mari gold dye in the ratio 10:1. Natural dye with Aloe vera juice in the ratio 10:10 shows a good dyeing effect on the animal fibers when compared to plant or synthetic fibers. The natural dye with Aloe vera juice in the ratio 10:10 was subjected to skin irritation study and the result showed no skin irritation, erythema or edema.
